Today, Suffolk Barrel Products is run by John and his wife Jill, as a
couple John and Jill both deal with the customers and the business side of
things, both John and Gill still take a hands on role of working with the
Taking delivery every month of hundreds of barrels, the business has gone from strength to strength and has surprised even John.
Much of this is down to the way he and Jill conducts business with their customers, John Explains... "We offer all the modern contact methods like this website and buying online, but unlike other barrel suppliers who simply buy a barrel and sell it on, from us you get a traditional business service, we're at the end of the phone for help and assist during and after your purchase".
John says..."when it comes to water conservation and storage in domestic properties of discerning gardeners, there really is no replacement for a traditional Oak Barrel, a typical roof will shed 10'000 gallons of water in an average rainfall year, you find that anyone with any sort of taste does not buy plastic ones".
As well as the products most people will associate with Oak Barrels John and his team also convert them to make garden hot tubs, dog kennels and amazing water features to name just a few, some customers have even purchased giant barrels to convert into children's wendy houses.
If you have an idea of a product you would like making that's not shown on the website, simply contact John from the contacts page or call him on 01787 247600 .
